Early retirement and a peaceful life? Stuff that.
23 May 2011 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

More comedic than horrific, this particular tale from the crypt builds up to a punchline no less satisfying despite how predictable it is.

M. Emmet Walsh is perfectly cast as grumpy Jonas, a man who retires and finds himself exasperated by the many animals that his wife (Audra Lindley) has befriended during the many years she spent on her own. Perhaps his new hobby will provide some pleasure.

Directed by Mary Lambert, and written by three people who seem to perfectly harness the spirit of the old E.C. comics, this tale is fun from start to finish, even if it's also quite unspectacular. It's the interaction between Walsh and Lindley that elevates this above average and makes it so much fun.
